CES 2023 is in full swing, and ROG has announced a host of new gaming machines that push performance and design to new heights. From the brand new 16- and 18-inch displays in the Strix SCAR and Strix G series to the completely redesigned Zephyrus M16 and brand-new silicon powering the entire lineup, we’re proud to share these amazing machines with you for the first time. Let’s take a deeper look at what the 2023 ROG laptop lineup brings to the table. 

The ROG Strix SCAR and Strix G become more immersive than ever

Building a high-performance gaming laptop is all about maximizing every component. More CPU and GPU power, a faster refresh rate screen, more memory and storage, without increasing the size or weight of the machine. The 2023 Strix series breaks the mold with brand new form factors, increasing the size of the display to give you more screen real estate than ever before. Introducing the Strix SCAR 16, Strix SCAR 18, Strix G16, and Strix G18 — four all-new laptops designed with high-performance gaming at their heart. 

Our new 16- and 18-inch Strix machines fill up more of your field of view with their expansive displays, while still fitting into typical 15- and 17-inch laptop bags. They also feature our ROG Nebula displays for the first time, ensuring fast, bright, vivid gameplay — with the Strix SCAR 16 featuring our Nebula HDR display, powered by Mini LED for an HDR image that jumps right off the screen. At a QHD resolution with a 240Hz refresh rate, even the highest octane gameplay is buttery smooth.
